About the lesson

I am a former secondary school French teacher currently a translator and french examiner. I'm 31, friendly and can help anyone with their French studies. My favourite skill to develop are speaking skills and I'm very good at building confidence through speaking. I can cover all skills associated with language study and can help teach you quick revision strategies and methods that work for you. Language learning should be fun and there's nothing better than being able to take the pressure out of learning and getting where you want to be in your own time so you can wow the examiner on the day. If you're naturally confident you can still find yourself lost in another language but it's all easily transformed! Language learning builds everyone's communication skills, confidence and ultimately widens your horizons. Even for those not particularly wishing to travel or move abroad or work with a language you get the same joy having a whole new view of the world and suddenly having more movies you can watch, things to read and even foreign language apps to play where appropriate. For those who are monolingual it is tricky to explain the difference a second language brings to your life. It's not just another way of naming a thing...not once it all comes together and a language clicks with you and you can think in another language...it can never be compared to another language it literally opens a new world because the new words bring altogether new meanings, ways of looking at things and expressing your feelings and emotions. Language study increases intelligence, interpersonal skills, empathy towards others and vital skills that can be applied to other areas in life. Also they stay with you forever. Nobody can take it away from you and that's the fundamental joy all learning brings. Investment in you.

If you're learning a language never give up! Have fun with it and enjoy the experience.

About Gigi

I have taught in a north wales secondary schools for five years prior to leaving in pursuit of a career in translation and I also have become an examiner for French. Not for wjec or british exam boards so there's no need to worry about any advantages for those doing GCSE or A level. I am greatly experienced in preparing students for these exams however and i know how the system works, where your teachers are getting your predictive grades from and i understand the beurocracy involved etc which can be handy to have an insight into. If you've been predicted a C for example it doesn't mean you can't get a tutor and aim for a B or higher it's just that your classroom teacher can't predict without their own evidence that you'd actually get that. They take a lot of responsibility in their predictions and basically you have to take your predictions on board in all your subjects but think of it as your fallback grade...tell your mind it's the minimum you should get. Really...you should aim for full marks on anything you sit. It's all logical...aim for the moon and you may miss but still be among the stars!

Aim for an A or whatever the top grade on your paper is! Don't aim for your prediction that's all safety net jargon you should take with a pinch of salt.

Learn and enjoy learning. It's fun!
